"Curse Breaker: Enchanted
by Melinda Kucsera is the first book in The Curse Breaker Saga, a captivating fantasy tale involving magic, secrets, and murder. Sarn is losing control of his magic and he may lose his sanity, too. In a world where enchanted trees commit murder and where nothing is what it seems, Sarn must regain control of his magic, unveil a dark secret, and stop an unnamed enemy from taking the life of his son. Whatever is lurking in the enchanted forest wants him and his magical powers, and it will do everything to stop him from finding the truth he is seeking. He is running against time and no one knows how long he can keep up before he becomes completely insane.
A story that starts with a man racing against time, when being late would mean his ultimate ruin, already creates interest and a sense of anticipation in the reader. Curse Breaker: Enchanted is a gripping story with monumental characters and a huge conflict. Melinda Kucsera takes the reader on a ride through fascinating landscapes, a beautiful setting with a life of its own, strange rules, and weird people and creatures. Her descriptive prose is seductive, capturing every detail of the story without hurting the pace in any way. I enjoyed the psychological depth of the conflict and the fact that the protagonist is often in a dilemma, torn between pursuing a mission and losing his son at the end, torn between his own will and a power that overshadows him. Readers will enjoy the intense action, the twists, the suspense, and ultimately, the satisfying finish. Great plot, great characters, great writing." --
From the Author
Finishing this book helped me grieve. I lost my younger sister in 2014 to complications of diabetes. She was 29. Before she died, she begged me to stop writing this series and publish it. Those were the last words she ever spoke to me.
For a year, every time I sat down to write, my sister's last words echoed in my heart, rending it until I dissolved into tears. I sought refuge in audiobooks spending days locked in other authors' stories while working full-time as an IT project manager.
But the world Sarn inhabits has a life of its own. I had created it before I turned five, and I carry it in my heart. Or I did until one day the cast of the Curse Breaker Saga strolled into a business meeting. Thank God I'm the only one who noticed.
From then on, they invaded my dreams and took over my life. I had already drafted most of the series chronicling Sarn's rise as the Curse Breaker and his inevitable collision with his ultimate dream--to join Shayari's version of the knights of the round table. So a lot of characters bugged me to tell their stories. And I did.
Curse Breaker: Enchanted is a perfect blend of an epic fantasy and a fast-paced murder mystery. The book has plenty of suspense and heart-melting father and son moments while Sarn works to untangle what happened and why. But the story doesn't end there. The big reveal is only the beginning of his problems.
Like you and I, Sarn can't drop everything to resolve this situation (much to the annoyance of the ghost haunting him and his out of control magic). He has a demanding job, a young son and a master who obstructs his investigation at every opportunity. Sarn's left chasing a dwindling deadline and a deadly enigma targeting him and his son.
I hope you enjoy Curse Breaker: Enchanted. I put my whole heart into this book.
